Geirangerfjord Kayaking and Fjord Farm Hike

Combine a kayaking experience with a hike to one of the most famous abandoned fjord farms, Skageflå. You’ll start your journey with a gentle paddle through the UNESCO World Heritage Site Geirangerfjord, discovering the beauty of the region from a unique vantage point in comfortable double or single kayaks. Next, you’ll leisurely make your way to a small bay, where you’ll leave your kayak and gear and start the hike up to Skageflå.

The path to Skageflå is challenging, with a steep and demanding route, but one that’s clearly marked. The effort is worth it, as, at the top, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Geirangerfjord, plus The Seven Sisters and The Suitor waterfalls. The Skageflå farm, and its wooden buildings with grass-covered roofs, stand high on a mountain ledge at about 885 feet (270 m).

When you’ve finished taking in the views, you’ll return to the bay and kayak back to Geiranger. Again, you'll paddle carefully through the water while listening to interesting facts about the region and its surroundings. Along the way, enjoy the scenery as you pass rocky cliffsides, dense forests, and abandoned mountain farms.
